Cold Temperatures, Costumed Dogs Highlight Mutt March

Suncoast Animal League's annual Mutt March held Saturday, Feb. 16, at Highlander Park featured crazy contests and a Mutt March pledge walk.

Sweaters and blankets were the accessory of choice for many dogs and their owners during the Suncoast Animal League's seventh Annual Mutt March on Saturday at Highlander Park. 

Despite cold temperatures, furry, four-legged friends participated in crazy contests and a Mutt March pledge walk, helping to raise $34,433 for Suncoast Animal League between Mutt March and Dogtoberfest in November
